6:02 pm
in the coming days? it's hard to say. iran's officials say they're asking for a half million dollars in bail to free sara. the iranian lawyer hired by the american i'mers' families tells cnn everything's in place except for the money. he was allowed to visit with all three hikers for the first time since they were detained last year. >> i have a question, once she stposts bail, will she still ne to stay in iran? >> reporter: well, we don't know. we talked with experts who say this processs hardly typical and given the strained relations between iran and the u.s., this is both a political and legal minefield. her family clearly wants her out of there as quickly as possible. >> what about the other two hikers, then, the two young men? >> reporter: yeah, prosecutors are ramping up their case against them. today a judge indicted them on spying charges and their familiesavehe consistently denied the children are spies and said if they cross the border, it was by accident. now, if they do go on trial,
6:03 pm
would fsarah be forced to come bae ck and testify? the seems unlikely but that's yet another possible cotion. >> i can only imagine what the milies are going through and you have been in touch withhe families. this must be a very diffict time for them. >> reporter: it has been a toug 13 months for them. sara's mom in particular is especially concerned about her daughter's health because sara discovered a lump inst one of h breasts and she's also worried about her daugh ter's mental health because sara's been in solitary confinement this entire time except for one hour a day. we're going to play back for you what sara's mother -- sara herself said about that loneliness last may when the moms were allowed to visit them. >> she we were in the room together and alone b that's the most difficult thing for me. i seem them twice a day. >> so, susan, who is doing the bidding for the moms on all of this? >> reporter: ll, don, because
6:04 pm
the u.s. and iran have no diplomatic ties, this was ambassador -- the swiss ambassador is an interimmediatary but she says technicalities in these latt demands are beingreviewed. the state department says it is monitoring developments. di susan candiotti following the story from new york, susan, thank you very much. the obama administration is taking this news out of iran with caution as white house adviser david axle rod tells nbc, iranian officials have gone back on this decision once already. >> we're hopeful and we're encouraged by this news but there have been starts and stops in this before and until that actually happens, we' on a wait and see basis >> we'll follow that story for you. we want to go to california. new questions about the gas mn that exploded in san bruno, california. a newspaper has found documents showing the utility, pga considered a portion othe gas main that ruptured to have a, quote, unacceptably high risk of failure ass far back as 2007.
6:05 pm
the first reedsidents were escorted back to see that damage. 37 homes were destroyed in thursday's explosion and fire. four people were killed, six are still missing. let's go to ted rolle rowlands reporting now from san bruno with the latest. >> reporter: pretty emotional scene up there where these residents are getting back for the first time a they're seeing firsthand the devastation. we went along with a couple who is just two houses away from the beginning of the area that was completely flattened. they said it was surreal to be there and to s their neighborhood had been pretty much demolished. nobody who lives in the aeas of the homes tharp demolished, those homeowners of the 37 homes, they are not allowed to go back. they're not allowed to sift through because investigato are literally sifting through the did he bray looking for any potential human remains. we're talking about fragments here and that is a painstakingly long procesto which continues today and is likely to continue
6:06 pm
over the the next few days. meanwhile, you mentioned that documents that did surface and cnn has obtained a copy of them, basically saying that agpg& e years ago identifiedhis pipeline in need of repair and potentially dangerous in the aspect that it might produce a gas le or fail. it doesn't mean that they thought by any stretch of the imagination, however, that it would be a tential life-threatening situation, but it is sill something that critics of pg&e was a red flag that they should have been more attuned to when there were reports of people smelling gas listen to this. >> nobody, pg&e included, could have imagined something as horrible and terrible as the sn bruno blast and fire as happening, but the fact remains that when pg&e. got the reports
6:07 pm
of gas leeks from several customers over several days, they should have realized that this was an area that was old, that was at high risk, tt they identified as high risk. >> reporter: and pg&e hasn't said much in this few days. they sayen they're not going to have anyecomments until the investigation is complete. >> we'll be getting back to you throughout the evening he on re cnn. appreciate your reporting. my next guest is very familiar with the events of 9/11. inact, he helpedgi write eulogies for all new york firefighters, police officers and port authority officers and other emergency workers killed in the collapse of the world trade center towers. he says a rally yesterday was a desecration of the significance of that day. he's going to explain why next. plus, living half a mile underground. can you imagine? what 30 miners are doing to survive.

we're going to a ntroversial topic so you want to pay attention to this one. yesterday, the nation remembe those lost on september 11th, e 2001, but some people say theis anniversary this year was unlike the last eight. they feel the controversy surrounding the proposed islamic center two blocks from ground zero turned a pay tree on theic day of mourning into a political football. john cavlon a regular contribut to cnn was at the rally yesterday where people were
6:11 pm
protesting that cultural center and some of it obviously some people there were agreeing with it. there were two protests. you call it a desecration of the significance of 9/11. desecration, that's harsh. why do you say that? >> because to a degree we've a 9/11 am measure yee, an increased splitization. one of the things that came out ofus that awful day wasn't just the beginning afte wider war we are still engaged in but an awareness that what unites us is fundamentally more important than what divides us. in the rise of partisan politics and an ugliness at some of these rallies marks the fact that we're forgetting that again. the divisions that are deeply divisive to acarins,hether democratic or republican, completely unimportant from the wider lens and that was an awareness that sunk in with people after the attacks in 2008. >> what did you speeskly see, john, that made you use such
6:12 pm
harsh words? of ust on both sides, a lot t pollat itization, anger and hate. one of the b organizers s somebody who referred to president obama as t muslim in the white house over 250 times on her blog. there's an inherently partisan political nature in this. it's not about democratic and republican but really a divisiveness. that's what we need to push against and remember. back when mccain and obama went to the ground zero remembrance together, that is the spirit we need to keep in mind and our hearts. we're losing it right w. >> you're talking about the poll itization of this and everybody agreed we need to take a step back and not call people name and listen to both sides. in listening to both sides that would mean to muslims would have to listen to the people who don't want this proposed mosque
6:13 pm
and cultural center near ground zero and tpehe same thing, the people who want it to have to listen to the muslim community. i want you to take a listen to what irshack van gee said this morning with christian amanpoau. >> one of the reasons they have those and ziets over t last nine years, moderate muslims have fails, moderate muslims have failed to make the case for why there is nothing to fear about islam. when major nidal hasan opens fire on a group of fellow soldiers at ft. hood, texas, is god is great, and the first thing you hear out of his mouth, is islam had nothing to do with, you could help but wonder why americans are scratching their heads. >> does she have a point? can you view this as a reaching across the aisle of sorts to say there are regular americans, many of them who ar not racist
6:14 pm
and not antiislam, who have questions and concerns about islam? >> reporter: absolutely. and irshad manzi has a point. we are at war with rad cam islamists and terrorists but we are not and never have been at war with islam. we need to remember that america's greatness flows from our goodness. good pele could disagree about the mosque and many other things. that's the tone we need need to set and example we need to set. recognizing the reality we are still at war withslamist terrorism and we have not and never been at war with islam. >> the next question in your book called "wing nuts, how the lunatic fringe is hijacking america." i have to ask about pastor terry jones. >> a great example of the way of extremists have a disproportionate influence.
6:15 pm
he was able to hijack media and much of the media surrounding the ninth anniversary of 9/11 by going from 50 congregants to0 being on the cover of 50 newspapers simply by threatening to burn the koran. it's a good example and cautionary tale of theay extremists are able to game the system and hijack the media with deeply disproportionate, unrepresentative statements and that kind of ugliness too often occupies our attention. we need to push back on that. >> hey, john, i have to run, real enjoying this conversation. you had very, vry smart points here. what do we do, besides going to earsch and every person's door try to explain to them about waysamb exactly is, what do we do in this situation, then? >> i think we need to recognize that we are that -- there's a wider war between frdom and fundamentalism around the world and each of us has an obligation as americans to try to bege the chan we want to see and stand up to extremism wherever and whenever we see it up if
6:16 pm
americans do that beginning at their dinner table and extending to harringer conversations, we could turnhe tide and stop extremists in whatever form they take, fromij our debates and recognize this is a wider r and it's the forces of reedom versus the forces of fundamentalism. >> well said, thank you, john avlon. with all this talk of burning korans and blockinghe building of an islamic center, a church in tennessee offers a refreshing change. they opened its arms to a new neighbor, a mosque. ouffir affiliate wmc has that story. >> reporte these words say it pull. >> once we put up the sign, probably within three days, people from the islamic center contacted us they were overelmed with emotion that we would be so welcoming. >> repter:teve sic when he hearabout plans for the multimillion-dollar memphis islamic center complex many
6:17 pm
built near his church, he knew he had to react. know much about islam. inly knew one fellow who was a muslim. i knew it was going to be a learning process for me. we follow jesus and he tells us to love our neighbors. >> reporter: stone says he hopes that by puttingt a welcome mat for muslims, it will send a strong message to those who may have associated christians with being anti-islam. >> people that associate christians with folks that are afraid or don't like muslims, i can't judge those people that are christian. i just believe to take the name of christ and to be hateful and do hateful things is a real insult. >> reporter: to prove his point, stone says the heart song church congregation is taking its new relationship with members of the memphis islamic center one step further. >> their facility was not quite finished, still isn't, and they came and asked m us if they mig be able to use our acility for ramadan prayers which we took as ahigh mpliment.

6:23 pm
get worried about this just yet. it's importa tnt that you know it's out there because it is extrely intense and this thing has st been ramping up all day long. igor just became ala hurricane late last nighert, 11:00 easter time, and now it's a category 4. so, you know, less tan 24 hours this thing has s a major hurricane with winds of 140 miles per hour. look at that satellite imagery. you can see just how symmetrical that storm is, how big that eye is. it's like 20 nautical miles around, so this storm is really almost as strong as it gets and could potentially get stronger in the next couple of days. ve water temperatures are very warm and it's heading into even warmer water. we're talking mid to upper 80s so there's a lot of fuel that will help hold this hurrine. now, there will be some changes in intensity because they often go through things like these eye wall replacement cycles and it's hard for it to maintain that intensity for a long period of time, but best estimate is that it will be a marojor hurricane
6:24 pm
throughout the time period and this is the position by thursday. so, that's when it gets its closest approach towards the lesser antilles. we think it will stay northf puerto rico and the u.s. virgin islands but if the storm grows in size, it could get wind lashing, whipping because of that's waves. the computer models go a long way out and the farther out in time you go, the more room there is f or error, but right now, best estimate is we're looking more ofty an earl-type storm bu hopefully to the east. we'll watch this thing as it continues to develop and pull further towards the west. last but not least before i let you go, we're watching a little area of disturbed weather in the caribbean has some potential in the next couple of days could become a tropical depression. >> igor small but mighty. thank you, jacqui jeras, we appreciate it. coming up, an incdible crash caught on tape. >> the flights were getting pretty intense. it was high. i could knock them down with a fire extinguisher, as soon as i

our economy going again and we want to get jobs in america. >> and, paul, i'm sure you got the e-mail as well cnn president obama's spokesman issued a statement saying the white house welcomes what what he called boehner's change in position, so what's going on here? >> listen , the democrats, white house, want to extend the bush tax wutsor families making under $250,000 a year. the republicans, you just heard john boehner say, they want to extend the tax cuts for all americans but boehner doesn't want the republicans and himselr be blamed for stopping the tax cuts to be extended for middle americans. he's going, he doesn't want to be going for all or nothing and getting blamed for that. so, kind of a tactical move here. don, what do americans think? we did a recent poll and about half of the people we asked say extend the tax cuts for those making $250,000 or less. or three out of three said extend it for all americans. 1 in 5 say, stop it. no more tax cuts for anybody. don't extend them at all. >> i don't remember talking
6:31 pm
about john boehner this much at all. we talked about the tax cuts and what he said since we had the health care vote, he played a big role in his opposition to that. speaking of john boehner, the president mentioned him eight types in a speech last week and new democrat party ad criticizes him by name and my question is, why are democrats targeting himg personally? >> they're going after them because, as you mentioned, don, if the republicans went want control of theex amber, he would become the next speaker of the house. they're trying to say, john bane ser not for you, s ma h tinstre america, he's inhe hands of wall street and big banks and that's what you'll see in this ad that the democy'ratic nation committee says they're going to come up with on tuesday. the democrats are trying to say boehneand the republicans will take you back to those failed policies that didn't work and got the u.s. into the mess it's ce but it's ast pla risky strateg we had a poll out that indicate most americans don't know enough aboutoehner to form an opinion on him. it's different with something like, say, nancy pelosi. republicans have been using
